Pandit Dhundhi Raaj, the writer of Jatak Bharnam, having studied the ‘Samhita Granthas’ has spoken of the effects of every ‘Samvatsara’ on an individual while their effects have greater importance in the context of all people. By generalising the effects of the Samvatsara (year), month, fortnight, tithi (lunar date) and day, much knowledge may be gained about the inclination or tendency, manner or way of life, economic condition, health, achievements and longevity etc. of every native.

‘Samvatsara’ roughly means the period of one full year. The time in which the Planet Jupiter with his average speed crosses the journey of one sign is referred to as ‘Samvatsara’. There occur twelve (12) Samvatsaras when Jupiter completes one complete round of the Zodiac. While moving in the Zodiac, Jupiter happens to reach sometimes near the Earth and sometimes far away from it. Besides, it also comes in contact with auspicious or inauspicious rays during its journey. It is because of this fact that the effects of every ‘Samvatsara’ become different. Sixty Samvatsaras repeat again and again in a cycle. At the beginning of creation Jupiter and Saturn were on the zero degree of Aries. The average daily motion of Saturn is two (2) Kalas (minutes). Therefore, it takes full thirty (30) years in revolving around the Zodiac. The average daily motion of Jupiter is five (5) Kalas, (minutes). Therefore it takes full twelve (12) years in completing its journey in the twelve (12) signs of the Zodiac. The L.C.M. (LOWEST COMMON MULTIPLE) of 30 and 12 is sixty (60). Therefore, at every sixty (60) years both the Planets reach the same zero degree (0°) of the sign of Aries. In this journey the various angles that are formed between Jupiter and Saturn have their influence on the effects of the Samvatsaras. As a matter of fact no other relationship of the other Planets affects an individual, a place or a country so much as the mutual angular relationship of Saturn and Jupiter.

Major delineations of ‘Bhrigusamhita’ seem to have been based on the relationship of these two Planets. In the books on ‘Siddhanta Jyotisha’ (Astronomy) the Samvatsaras have been counted 60 beginning from the Samvatsara named ‘Vijaya’ and going down to, that named ‘Nandana’ (the 60th Samvatsara). But ‘Varahamihira’ in ‘Brihat Samhita’ has regarded the beginning of the Samvatsara cycle, not from the ‘Vijaya’, but from the 35th Samvatsara of ‘Prabhava’. Since Varahamihira’s times it is this sequence which has been accepted.

THE EFFECTS OF BIRTH IN THE PARTICULAR SAMVATSARA

1. PRABHAVA: The native born in the ‘Prabhava Samvatsara’ is intent on or is in readiness for the collection of all kinds of things, is blessed with many sons, has excellent intellect, enjoys all kinds of comforts and has a long span of life.

2. VIBHAVA: The native born in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Vibhava’ enjoys things which are meant to be consumed (foods, drinks etc.) is extremely beautiful, strong and intelligent, knows the mysteries of arts, is like a king in his family (the chief of the family), good mannered, cultured and very learned.

Notes : ‘Vibhava’ means grandeur, pomp, majesty (or prosperous state). It also implies excesstveness (the state of having too much). The native having his birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Vibhava’ gets his name in the first place in the field which is chosen by him as his field of action. There is complete absence of bitterness in his disposition or nature as bitterness is given to one by want or poverty. Or the fear of losing what one has acquired also gives birth to bitterness and ‘Vibhava’ is opposed to want or poverty. The native bom in the Samvatsara of ‘Vibhava’ is rational, without bigotry or fanaticism and without ostentation or show and is also endowed with scientific point of view.

According to another text : ‘Maan Saagri’, the native having his birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Vibhava’ has disposition like that of a woman, restlessness in his nature, is a robber or smuggler, is wealthy and doer of good to others.

3. SHUKLA: The native whose birth occurs in the Samvatsara of Shukla always remains joyful, is extremely generous, has excellent qualities, is blessed with sons and wife, full of grandeur and prosperity, endowed with good fortune, and learning and humility.

Notes : The native born in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Shukla’ is generally clean hearted and pure. He has always an inclination towards acquiring knowledge. Such a person has no enemy around him and he himself does not have enmity with anyone. According to’Jataka Parijata’ such a native is intelligent and wise, has spirit of renunciation and seduces some other man’s wife.

In ‘Maansaagri’ the native born in the Samvatsara of ‘Shukla’ has been spoken of as a victim of poverty.

4. PRAMODA: The native who has his birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Pramod’ is the giver of alms (or charity), blessed with the joy of having sons, enjoys pleasure, is extremely beautiful, truthful, has good qualities, is skilful, deceptive, doer of good to others and proud.

Notes: The literal meaning of the word ‘Pramod’ is joy, happiness and comfort. Therefore, it is quite natural that the native having his birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Pramod’ should have qualities in consonance with its name (Pramod). Here indication has been made of his (native’s) having the bad trait of deceptiveness. But it seems to be a contradiction that the person who is known for his truthfulness, good qualities, skilfulness, doing good to others should also have the bad trait of deceptiveness. Deceptiveness and truthfulness are really opposed to each other. But it may be concluded that such a person would be very skilled in getting his work done in one way or the other. The author of ‘Jataka Parijata’ speaks of such a person to be extremely devoted to his work.

5. PRAJAPATI: The native having his birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Prajapati’ is proud of being the husband of a wife who is endowed with good qualities, always kind hearted, practises the religion of his family, has excellent nature, does reverence to a god, Brahmin and his teachers, and is courteous.

Notes: Such a native has in addition to the above virtues the very important and distinguishing quality of creativity. Due to the joy which is derived from creating something new, the person does not experience the pain arising from worldly matters. Therefore the entrance of any pain in his life is almost an impossibility.

According to ‘Maan Saagri’, such a native has many issues, is the chief of a big family and is wealthy.

6. ANGIRA: The native who is in the ‘Samvatsara’ of Angira is endowed with beauty, is happy, has all the objects of enjoyment, self-pride, is sweet- spoken and blessed with many sons, keeps his thoughts (plans) secret in a proper way and is long-lived.

Notes: According to ‘Maan Saagri’ such a native performs religious rites in a proper way , knows the rules as laid down in ‘Dharma Shastras’ (Scriptures), has the knowledge of the Vedas and pays respect to guests and friends.

According to the author of ‘Jataka Parijata’, he is politic, prudent, skilful, always kind hearted and wealthy. Besides, such a native generally likes to eat satwik food, eats extremely sweet foods, has additional inclination (interest) towards the opposite sex and there is fearlessness in his disposition.

7. SHRIMUKHA: The native whose birth takes place in the “Samvatsara’ of ‘ShriMukha’ is wealthy, valorous, energetic, knows a number of ‘Shastras’ , has affection for his friends, is endowed with truthful; intellect has physical strength, has good fame and is extremely generous.

Notes : According to ‘Maan Saagri’ such a native is a trader of the articles of metal and adopts the way of dissimulation in accomplishing or effecting his work (object).

The author of Jataka Parijat also makes a somewhat contradictory statement about such a native and says that a native born in this ‘Samvatsara’ because of having a desire of sexual intercourse with some other man’s wife is endowed with a flirting mind.

Thus, inspite of the different statements in differents books about such a native there is at least agreement on fact that the native born in the Samvatsara of Shri Mukha is wealthy, honoured and enjoys all kinds of enjoyable things.

8. BHAVA: The native whose birth occurs in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Bhava’ has a splendid or magnificent mind, is very famous, is endowed with good qualities, is ready to give alms, is courteous, always remains happy and is endeared to many.

Notes: Such a native is regarded as having a lofty or high conduct. His heart is full of generosity and intelligence, he squanders away affinity with great love for one and all. His halo (or ring of light around the head of man) contains energy in his whole life.

In the view of the author of ‘Jataka Parijata’ such a native is an ascetic, engaged in government work, is exceptionally wealthy, is illustrious and strong.

As per, ‘Maan Saagri’ such a native has liking for flesh and fish also.

9. YUVA: The native who is blessed with birth in the’Samvatsara’ of ‘Yuva’ is the direct incarnation of happiness, is endowed with good qualities, is courteous, peaceful, bountiful or generous, full of erudition or learning, long-lived, has a very hard and firm body and is contented.

Notes: In consonance with the name the native born in this ‘Samvatsara’ is always in good health, has a strong and powerful body. But it is not known why in ‘MaanSaagri’ such a native has been spoken of as subjected to disease and pains. Besides, it has also been mentioned that he remains distressed due to his wife and has fear from water. Additionally, in the ‘Samhita Granthas’ it has been stated that due to his having a youthful body many beautiful women remain prepared to entrust their youth (their youthful bodies) to him.

10. DHATA: Due io having birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Dhata’ the native has pride of possessing all kinds of good qualities, is exremely beautiful, devoted to his ‘guru7 (teacher), skilled in craft or art and courteous and good-mannered.

Note: The iiterai meaning of the word ‘Dhata’ is ‘Vidhata’ (Lord Brahama, who is the Creator and Ordainer of the Universe). The word is also indicative of the Trimurti’ — Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesha — or Trinity according to the Hindu Mythology. If such a native is related to the world of craft or art, miscellaneous or various dimensions are distinctly and clearly seen in his work.The work accomplished by him gives the appearance or likeness of completeness. In ‘Maan Saagri’ the effects of birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Dhata1 are described in the above manner. But the effects of birth in this ‘Samvatsara’ as described in ‘Jataka Parijat’ are quite opposed to those described above. There such a native has been spoken of as one who has attachment or attraction towards some one else’s wife, is stupid or foolish and engaged in controversy.

11. BAHUDHANYA: The native having birth in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Bahudhanya’ is wise in trade, respected by royalty (government), charitable, suffers from pride, knows the essential nature (or secrets) of the ‘Shastras’ and possesses many kinds of wealth and grains (physical comforts).

12. ISHWAR: The native whose birth occurs in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Ishwar’ gets angry very soon (that is, he is short tempered), is full of joy, has good qualities in him, is valorous, skilful and sagacious, skilled in arts and is courteous.

Notes: A native born in this ‘Samvatsara’ gets angry very soon only when something occurs which is contrary to his view or interest, otherwise he generally remains joyful.

In ‘Maan Saagri’ very excellent effects have been stated for the native whose birth occurs in this ‘Samvatsara’. Such a native is wealthy, enjoys all kinds of physical or bodily pleasures, has interest in rearing cattle, but he earns wealth by remaining within the prescribed limits of religion. He has exceptional sexual desire. In ‘Jataka-Parijata’ an additional quality of appreciating or discerning the virtues of others, has also been mentioned for such a native.

13 PRAMATHI: The native who is born in the ‘Samvatsara1 of ‘Pramathi’ is endowed with chariots, flag, umbrella, horses, is engrossed in the study of Shastras, is killer of his enemy, minister of the king and has knowledge of the Vedas.

Notes: ‘Pramathi’ is that man who is endowed with the virtue of a soldier. Such a person has the tendency of achieving his mission by means of force and does not give support to any other policy than that of harsh policy. The chariots, flag umbrella and horses mentioned in the Shloka are the indications of this fact that the native born in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Framathi’ is a high official of the royal army. Flag, and umbrella indicate royal insignia. Chariots and horses are replaced in the modern times by the fast and powerful conveyances and by planes and missiles which have to be employed in the modern warfare. Here the effects described are opposed to those which are stated in ‘Maan Saagri’ according to which such a native has attachment (illegal) with some other man’s wife and wealth, is an addict and is a gambler.

The effects however, described in ‘Yawana-Jataka’ : that is , the native born in the Samvatsara of ‘Pramathi’ is an army soldier, minister of the king, recipient of gift, bears a bow (and arrows) knows the Shastras and amasses wealth. things which are blame worthy, remains in the company of men of vicious or wicked conduct, accomplishes things for others, has many wives, is dirty (base), lazy and avaricious (greedy).

Notes: The word ‘Vikrama’ means strength, bravery or valour. The effects indicative of these virtues have been referred to in the ‘ Shloka’. Such a native is capable of doing even the hardest work and he is always eager and ready also for it . If such a person has got the position of a high official under the King (or in the government), then his term of service is spent in executing the various plans and schemes of the king (or the government).

Notes: The compound word in the verse is full of much meaning. Here Pandit Dhundhi Raj wants to say that though such a native is wealthy but he is not the hoarder of things; he has the tendency of consuming things obtained by him.

According to ‘Maan Saagri’ such a native is popular, is boy-cotted or ostracized by the people of all religions, that is, he has atheistic attitude towards religion, is employed in state service and earns wealth through this very means.

Notes: Such a native is very conscious with regard to his aims and objects and ambitions. He procures these in any way, no matter what measures he has to adopt for it. He believes in removing the obstacles in the way of achieving his aims and objects in a very cruel way and by a clever device. He does not care even if some one suffers loss from it. According to ‘Jataka Parijat’ such a native is religious, truthful and is prosperous. And the author of ‘Maan Saagri’ also praises the native having his birth in the Samvatsara of ‘Vijaya’. He points out. “Such a native gets fame, longlife, glory or honour, happiness, success in all his efforts, is a hero or champion in the war and is invincible or unconquerable by his enemy, that is, such a native gets victory in war, has the happiness from wife, obtains the auspicious and inauspicious effects due to his friend and enemy and is involved in trade.

Notes: ‘Man matha’ is the god of Love (cupid) or the god of sexual desire. In our ‘Puranas’, ‘Kamdeva’ (Manmatha) has been identified with the deity or god of the arts of dancing, music etc. As said, the native born in the ‘Samvatsara’ of ‘Manmatha’ is handsome, delicate, given to sensuality (gratification of sexual desire), serene or mild, sweet-spoken and a lover of ornaments. His way of doing things (his style) is extremely beautiful. He is a lover of beauty. His aesthetic sense is excellent. He is naturally amorous by disposition.

Notes: The word “Durmukha’ means ‘one who has an ugly face’. It is due to this that such a native has been spoken of as having curved mouth and curved hands and feet. Besides this, curvedness or crookedness is there on the intellectual plane as well. It is almost impossible that such a native should agree to the thoughts and ideas which are accepted by one and all.

31 HEMLAMBA: If the birth is there in the ‘Samvastsara of ‘Hemlamba’ the native is endowed with horse, means of conveyance which is costly, of high speed and four wheeled, gold, clothes, wealth and grains and gems. He has the happiness of having a good wife and sons and he has the tendency of collecting all kinds of material things (for comfort and convenience).

Notes: The Hindi word ‘Hema’ is the synonym of ‘Suwarana’ or gold. Such natives are generally seekers of comfort and happiness. They have materialistic point of view and are very successful in worldly matters. They proceed towards prosperity right from their young age. They have the tendency to bring to their homes even the costliest of things. They regard their own comfort and happiness as of prime importance. Such a person is respected in society only due to his prosperity or richness. Otherwise he is very miserly. Such a person is of little use to anyone when his help is needed or when an occasion to help others arrives.

According to the writer of ‘Jataka Parijata’ such a native is pure and clean, peaceful, extremely adroit or skilled, honoured everywhere due to his virtues, is beneficent, one who remains engaged or busy in religious debates or discussions and is the husband of an ugly-faced wife. The native is of wicked soul, and has a desire to do agricultural and such other works.

Notes: This ‘Samvatsara’ is known as ‘Shobhana’ also. The meaning of the words ‘Shobhana’ and ‘Shobhakrita’ is the same, because the meaning of both is beautiful, excellent and auspicious. The words beauty and brilliance are synonyms of it. The author of ‘Jataka Parijata’ uses the word ‘Shubhakriti’ instead of ‘Shobhakrita.The meaning of term ‘Shubhakriti’ is an auspicious composition.
